<em>Gears of War</em> thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind’s epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.</p> <p>In this third-person tactical shooter, gamers live and breathe the role of Marcus Fenix. A disgraced former war hero, Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warrior fiends. Gamers immerse themselves in an experience so intensely emotional and gut-wrenching that playing will be like controlling a blockbuster action movie.</p>
The first wave in an ongoing line of Gears of War action figures includes main character Marcus Fenix, Augustus Cole, and the villainous Locust Drone, and are expected in stores late spring of 2008. Featuring an unprecedented amount of detail, extensive articulation, and game-accurate accessories, the action figures will appeal to the most dedicated Gears of War players, as well as action figure collectors in general.
